Side shots / more shots of the bike are a must post.

Also some in depth shots of how you have the V35's mounted or I will come to your house and eat your dog.

I thought about getting the SW Motech rack and welding some mounts to that but I'd like to see how others have done it. I've found some guys on a german site and a spanish site, but not many guys running V35's in the states.

Much appreciated. Especially the one about getting the Givi rack out of Thailand.

How do you like your Corbin? I had one on my KLR and hated it but it was the low option which was thin. I want to use mine as a long distance tourer as well, it's going to have to have a better seat.

One of the many reasons you should have gone with the Ninjette.

Changed the oil in the Ninja (it was disgusting) to Amsoil 1040 synthetic and put new Pirelli Diablo tires, its a whole new different bike!

Sooooo smooth now and much better shifting.

Did an oil change a few days ago at 8,000 miles.

Photobucket

Turns out a PO lost the washer that sits on top of the spring you set the oil filter on, I reckon its not very critical because my oil pressure is fine and the filter seems to be filtering. I'll source another in the meantime but another 2,500-3,000 miles won't hurt nothin'...

Shifts better when downshifting now, was getting kind of crunchy before the change.

Please, please, please, no oil wars please! But I see your location being Florida. Any reason you did not opt for a 20W50 OIL due to your climate??
